I'm back to golf after a winter hiatus. I found skiing again, actually skiboarding (RVL8) and fell back in love with it. I went out 2 times so far this season, not counting Myrtle Beach in Feb. 84 and a 91(WTF...) while the scores do not reflect a great game, I was impressed. Down a total of 120lbs since last season, I am getting my swing back. I am playing again 6/4,6/5 in a little tournament. I am going back to conventional putting from LHL(switched from WINN1.18 to Ping Cadence midsize grip) and I took out the 26* hybrid and SLDR mini from the bag. I went back to my standard set-up. Hoping to get a decent golf season in this year and would love to get some touch back and break 80.

    Congrats on losing the weight. What prompted that idea?

    I had gastric sleeve surgery in August to assist with weight loss. I was/am healthy, just heavy. usually healthy fat people fall over from a heart attack. Didn't want that to happen

    Congrats on your weight loss !!!



    I quit smoking over 14 months ago and have gained 25 pounds since then. Been fluctuating up and down a few pounds from the "new normal" but that has to stop, and soon.
